Take a moment and recall the fateful morning of January 28, 1986, when
a booster engine failed, causing the NASASpace Shuttle Challenger [Mission Flight STS-51L] to break apart 73 seconds after launch. The Flight STS-51L Mission was the 25th Space Shuttle mission and the 10th launch of the Space Shuttle Challenger.
All were heroes, all are missed. Requiescant in Pace
